Beschreibung des Verlags
Fans of Abbi Glines will adore Violetta Rand’s novels about strong-willed women who must fight to survive—and the men who love them. Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire . . . and sometimes dreams come true.
Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.
The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.
Praise for Surrender
“Surrender is a new adult romance for those who like their romance on the down-and-dirty side, with their heroines still surprisingly innocent and their heroes as knights in slightly tarnished armor.”—Library Journal
“Edgy and kick-ass, Surrender is a sizzling romance that you’ll be hard pressed to put down!”—Stacey Kennedy, USA Today bestselling author of the Club Sin series
“Surrender is a wonderful journey of passion, pleasure, and the true meaning of love. You know a book is great when you’re still turning the pages at three in the morning to read ‘one more chapter.’ I will confess right up front, Garrick is my new book boyfriend. The man is hot, hot, hot!”—USA Today bestselling author Sandra Owens
“A gritty, well-paced, enthralling read, Surrender hooked me from the start.”—Bestselling author Kathryn le Veque
“The chemistry between these two was delicious. Garrick and Robyn were perfectly flawed and made for a wonderful romance tale not soon to be forgotten!”—BTS Book Reviews
“New Adult readers will definitely enjoy this debut, not too dark, not too angsty, and just the right amount of naked Garrick.”—A Tasty Read
“Wow, what an emotional, suspenseful and steamy read!”—Lustful Literature
“Surrender sizzles off the pages. . . . The romance that develops between Garrick and Robyn is wonderfully portrayed, but more importantly, gripping and real. Violetta [Rand] takes you deep into their heads, their emotions, and you can't help but feel for both of them.”—Blue Rose Romance
“This book was very suspenseful and I loved the chemistry between Robyn and Garrick! . . . Definitely an awesome read!”—Sweet Yet Naughty (five stars)

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
The Devil's Den contemporary series launch brings spectacularly hot chemistry to a cast of unsympathetic characters with nobody to cheer for. Robyn Gonzalez is a virginal sweetheart fleeing her abusive family. She needs to pay for college, so she becomes a stripper at a sleazy club in Corpus Christie, Tex. After she encounters a Mexican drug dealer who's a walking clich , her common sense and dignity vanish, and she runs into the arms of Garrick Dempsey, the club's possessive, manipulative bouncer. As Robyn feebly protests that she wants to maintain her independence, Garrick issues edicts about what kinds of work Robyn can do, lays out rules and boundaries, and educates her on why women need men to protect them. Texan readers who pick this up for the setting may be dismayed to see it used to excuse an abundance of misogyny and sexual violence. Only the frequent, genuinely hot sex scenes provide any redemption for an unpleasant story.
